feel mitt romney dominated by bringing more energy to it. how did you see it? >> well, i think the president has always had a certain dignified reserve and i think that's one of the admirable qualities about the president. as i was watching the debate i think what mitt romney really needed tonight was a big game changer. he needed to address the observation that he hasn't had any specifics for all of these great promises. you know, $5 trillion in cuts but it won't add to the deficit, trust me i'll tell you later. eat cake, lose weight. so i don't think he got the game changer he needed tonight. i do think the president was particularly strong, though, in getting governor romney to admit that he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program and i also believe the president was good in drawing the contrast between the two economic approaches, the two economic plans. governor romney believes that tax cuts for the wealthy grow jobs. most of us understand that those sorts of tax cuts are what grow deficits. they don't grow jobs. and president obama and his opportunity economy, i
at a live picture of the president who is on stage in madison, wisconsin. he looks fairly full of energy to me. he appears to be hard-working. what would you say, sir, to mr. sununu? >> i would say to mr. sununu he doesn't know what he's talking about. i have worked with the president over the last four years who has given his blood, sweat, and tears to turn this economy around, and i think he's done a very good job of that and he's still got a lot of work to do. and the fact is that this president because of people like mr. sununu in the republican party, republicans have done every single thing in their power to stop this president from accomplishing what he's accomplished. but he's accomplished more, martin, in his three years and eight months than most presidents do in eight years. so i think mr. sununu needs to take those words back, as we say in the congress. i think it's very unfortunate for somebody to be saying that about this president who has done a great job. >> mr. romney said last night he wants to sit down with democrats and work out a solution to health care and so on. wh
says economically. right now that's the name of the game, energy policy, economics, et cetera. so talking about the united states leading, we have to hear the specifics. what specifically should the united states do that isn't being done right now? >> stand by if you will. we're watching the clock and watching the live cameras at the virginia military institute because that's where governor romney is expected any moment to take the microphone and deliver this extraordinarily important foreign policy speech. it is certainly long awaited and there are a lot of eyes and ears ready to hear what he has to say more than the erpt examines we have been able to play. stand by. we'll take a quick break and be back after this. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's
americans. and if romney can hit home the fact that we all want lower health care costs, lower energy costs, that we all need economic growth and job creation, i think then he has a real shot at the white house. jenna: is there still time? >> that's the question. [laughter] i think for any candidate, and this is my opinion, but i think you have to be specific. i think that you can't be wishy washy. jenna: is that what you're going to be looking for in the debate, for example, something that could sway women voters and close that gap a little bit? >> yeah. i think they tried a little bit during the rnc and were not as successful. i thought it was interesting how he talked about all of the very strong women he's been surrounded by and he's surrounded himself by in his life personally and in government and in the professional world, but i think he needs to be more specific. he doesn't need to be scared to come out and explain why something like the lily ledbetter act is a bad policy for women. i think he needs to say, look, the wage gap is a myth, let me tell you why, and let me tell you how v
. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we are helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. >> reporter: what we saw after the president framed that way, though, framed it that way is that mitt romney punched back and said, wait a second you've been president for four years, why haven't you done some of that. it didn't appear that the president had been challenged in that kind of a direct way in a longtime and didn't really counter punch on those points. he's going to have to recover quickly now not just because we have two more presidential debates and a vice presidental one coming next week, but tomorrow there is a jobs report for the month of september. that is something the obama camp will have to be ready for as well. jon: some are saying is part of the reason romney scored is because he was more personal, had a more personal approach. do you think that is the case in. >> there were some elements of that. we've heard so much out off the campaign trail a
, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> all right. it's 42 past the hour. welcome back to "morning joe." joining us on set, u.s. senator from new york, senator chuck schumer. >> good morning. >> and joe? >> yes. >> you are going to behave. >> i'm going to try. i'm going to try. >> he always behaves. >> well, not really, actually. >> i want to ask you what we asked senator mccain.
four years, in terms of our education system, developing american energy or making sure we're closing loopholes for companies that are shipping jobs overseas or focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states, or closing our deficit in a balanced way, all those things are designed to make sure that the american people, their genius, their grit, their determination is channelled and they have an opportunity to succeed. and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing a fair share and playing by the same rules. you know, four years ago i said that i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i've kept. but i also promised that i would fight every single day on behalf of the american people, the middle class and all those who are striving to get into the middle class. i've kept that promise and if you vote for me, i promise i'll fight just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election an
